I believe we will only continue to see more results like these pointing towards a significantly lower mortality rate to infection ratio than the MSM and fear-mongering "experts" have inaccurately and deceitfully led people to believe.


L.A. County Antibody Tests Suggest the Fatality Rate for COVID-19 Is Much Lower Than People Feared

Published 4/20/2020

• The tests indicate that the number of infections in the county is around 40 times as high as the number of confirmed cases.

• Preliminary results from antibody tests in Los Angeles County indicate that the true number of COVID-19 infections is much higher than the number of confirmed cases there, which implies that the fatality rate is much lower than the official tallies suggest. "The mortality rate now has dropped a lot," Barbara Ferrer, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, said at a press briefing today. In contrast with the current crude case fatality rate of about 4.5 percent, she said, the study suggests that 0.1 percent to 0.2 percent of people infected by the virus will die, which would make COVID-19 only somewhat more deadly than the seasonal flu.

• As of noon today, Los Angeles County had reported 617 deaths out of 13,816 confirmed cases, which implies a fatality rate of 4.5 percent. Based on that death toll, the new study suggests the true fatality rate among everyone infected by the virus is somewhere between 0.1 percent and 0.3 percent (without taking into account people infected since the study was conducted). The lower end of that range is about the same as the estimated fatality rate for the seasonal flu.

This is what I predicted would happen months ago. This also means the actual infection rate is a significant portion of the population, meaning the economic shutdown accomplished near nothing if almost everyone gets infected anyways.

Congrats, Easily Spooked Wimps of America -- you officially clamored to jump the gun & allowed the government to trash the economy for nothing. Great job, let's not do it again!

Exactly. The shutdown is accomplishing very little, and as more and more tests like these are conducted we will see the picture much more clearly. Extremely high infection rates and low mortality rate compared with what MSM and fear-mongers have been regurgitating 24/7.

Oh, it'll happen again, again, and again.

Some odd number of years from now another "novel" virus will catch traction and people will once again spazz and panic buy TP and wear fashionable masks.

There are a lot of people whos eyes have been opened and I don't expect it to go as swimmingly if they try something like this again.

New York study have similar results as L.A. research:

Researchers there found COVID-19 could have been 55 times more prevalent than reported, which would mean a far lower morbidity rate than believed.

I had little to no issue with a lot of the stuff in the beginning.

Social distancing, bringing awareness to at-risk groups, etc. I think a lot of those could be helpful, in general. Ive since found that many higher risk individuals were completely ignorant that they should watch out during certain times of the year.

The moment it switched to "orders," welllllll, now I got an issue.

I mean, so many were lecturing about how the lockdowns were to prevent medical system failure. That did, and does make sense to me. Its a balance though, for everything from economic factors to immune system familiarity in the population. I suspected that for this disease, the social mitigation of voluntary distancing and such would be more than adequate and that everything should be location-by-location. Judging by hospital occupancy, that seems accurate.

Now, I see many of those same folks that were lecturing about flattening the curve.. Implying that its all about making sure no one gets sick, ever.

Odd shift.. "Flattening the Curve" was never really marketed (initially) by the Manipulation Machine to do anything but spread infections out over time and prevent excess deaths from a medical system that cant cope.

I suppose that explanation ended up falling flat, and it was moved to "no infections."

Only three one-hundredths of 1% of Americans have died from either the flu or covid-19 this year.

It is only a matter of time before the grand hoax and the participants in this Grand hoax are exposed.

Wait...so you mean to tell me those of us who were skeptical from the beginning aren't just conspiracy theorists, far right extremists or any other of the crap bandied around?

Turns out we, without degrees, fancy data modelling and all the resources in the world were right. The world panicked and committed financial and societal suicide for nothing. Well, not for nothing...the economy has been destabilised enough and reached the requisite levels of unemployment a few more may consider socialism as the answer.......

There needs to be some serious she's tr ions asked of the 'expert's who have been wildly wrong time and again. They literally have one job to do and have failed miserably.

Best hope the rest of us don't fund out we've been intentionally misled.

This has just made the extreme left, globalist agenda all the more apparent. If you're a proponent of this far left agenda then you are part of the new face of evil.
